Late Night Feed, in partnership with Maltesers, is a one-off comedy special where Ellie Taylor, Athena Kugblenu and Jess Fostekew open their hearts and take a light-hearted exploration into the uniquely challenging experience of being a new mum. Delving into their maternal mental health challenges with their relatable, authentic and warm takes on motherhood, the three comedians share what it’s really like bringing home a newborn, how they coped in the first year of their child’s life and what their friends and family did to support them. Channel 4 and Maltesers have partnered on this project to help overcome the stigma and shame that can be wrongfully attached to maternal mental health issues.
Maltesers has chosen to support mums’ mental health this year, by working with and raising money for Comic Relief, a partnership that has existed for ten years. Comic Relief has supported work in this area since 2010 by funding organisations across the UK that aim to reduce social isolation and help women and families across the UK to access specialist support.
